Are you looking for the chance to make a genuine impact on customers’ lives and to really improve their experience?

The Role:

An exciting opportunity is available to join us as our Building Safety Operations Manager, ensuring that we continue to deliver best in class property compliance service, regularly review our overall approach and taking the lead on building safety work as new regulation and legislation come into being, protecting the Thirteen brand and keeping customers and colleagues safe.

We are looking for someone to lead on Thirteen’s approach to Building Safety, managing a team of specialists to deliver building safety services to the wider organisation including compliance maintenance delivery, fire safety and general building safety.

You will be responsible for the delivery associated with fire risk assessments, asbestos management, compliance management and building safety as well as lead on our response to government consultation and emerging advice/new regulatory requirements as required.  A key part of this will be supporting a cultural health and safety change to embed a zero-defect and zero-accident approach.

The Person:

We need a strong, charismatic, and confident professional to join us to ensure we continue to deliver excellent property compliance services and continue to raise the bar in respect of building and customer safety. This is not a health and safety role though a strong appreciation of the regulatory environment will be helpful.

We would expect you to have hands on operational and people management experience, ideally but not necessarily within a property compliance environment.  A skilled influencer and negotiator, you’ll need to be able to communicate effectively with external stakeholders, customers, colleagues and committee members.

The future is exciting, and we only want the best to be part of it.

At Thirteen we're about homes and so much more.....

At Thirteen, we’re more than just a landlord. We believe everyone is an individual. That’s why we don’t just provide properties; we offer a home to suit each person’s needs.

And we’re not just about somewhere to live; our range of extra services means we can give people a helping hand specifically tailored to them if they need it.

Our strength, capacity and ambition to deliver what our customers need means we can change things for the better.

We’re the largest housing association in the North East and among the biggest 25 nationally.  Today we own and manage some 34,000 properties in the North East region, 30,000 of them in the Tees Valley. Thirteen is still an organisation that’s local at its heart.

Our skilled colleagues and board directors work tirelessly to support 70,000 tenants and customers, bringing a breadth of experience and a can-do attitude to ensure a high-quality customer experience.

So come and be part of making a difference. Great days for everyone are made at Thirteen.

Are you up for the challenge of bringing our vision to life and having great days at work?
